Steam is selling this for 19.99 So even though there is a little bit about the game that looks sketch, it looks like solid smooth game-play and decent graphics especially at that price.
THQ's ValuSoft division brings third-person shooter and "Make Something Unreal" winner to retail this year; Xbox 360 and PS3 downloadable editions set for early 2012 launch.
Halloween has a habit of attracting some appropriately ghoulish game releases, and this year's All Hallows Eve is no exception. Gamers are already expecting horrific second helpings of Dead Rising 2, The House of the Dead: Overkill, and Infamous 2, and THQ today announced it will be offering its own first-run horror game with a second-run price tag.
This October, THQ label ValuSoft will launch the third-person survival horror PC game The Haunted: Hell's Reach at retailers nationwide at a $20 price point. Downloadable versions of the game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are expected to arrive in early 2012.
The 2010 grand prize winner of Epic Games' Make Something Unreal contest, The Haunted is a multiplayer-focused shooter built on Unreal Engine 3 and featuring 30 stages, more than 20 enemy types, upgradable melee and projectile weapons, and four distinct game modes. When asked by GameSpot about their inspirations for the project, game director Michael Hegemann and creative director Gerhard Weihrauch cited a range of horror media, from Stephen King's Dark Tower series of books to the games of Shinji Mikami (like Resident Evil 4, God Hand, and Vanquish) and comedy-horror classics like Evil Dead.

This is a great-looking game for an indie effort. All those of you who complain about big-budget sequels year after year, stop complaining and
@lipehique: as Cwagmire21 pointed out, its a cropped pic and actually in 3rd person if you open it. I thought it was a 1st person looking at the above pic. I made a quick assumption.
Just not a fan of TPSs. No idea why they are so popular or how they even caught on in the first place.
@Gravity_Slave if hells break loose I guess you wouldnt have time to learn how to properly hold a gun like a gentleman =). fun game!
When a developer says they want to create a "comedy-horror classic" that usually means they're too lazy to make a game good and proper.
@Gravity_Slave I thought the same, but the thumbnail is cropped and if you click on it, it shows it much better and looks correct.
I think all "Game Developers" should integrate third person shooter in there FPS games for an option also Cross platform play for on line!
The way that gun is held in the pic just looks all wrong. it's held right handed and shoved all the way to the left of the screen. you can tell its an indy game.
This game is a lot more fun than the trailer suggests (what a crappy trailer). Not sure I'd pay money unless I knew a LOT of people would play it. Single player is boring.
Good News The Haunted was a fantastic mod for ut3 looked great and most importantly was fun to play glad it got made into a full retail game. This was the game re5 should have been none of this stop and aim crap. Only flaws where a the very small community so only got to play one versus match and the lack of content means it got repetitive but looks like they got that taken care of with 30 maps and 20 enemy types and being retail expect alot more people to be playing. Looking forward to getting this when it comes.
